Takin' Over the Asylum

by Donna Franceschild

 

A hilarious and profoundly moving stage adaptation of Donna Franceschild’s BBC TV series set in Glasgow. When Ready Eddie McKenna, Soul Survivor and double-glazing salesman, arrives to re-launch a defunct hospital radio station in a psychiatric unit, he turns more than the ramshackle station upside-down.

 

The whisky drinking would-be DJ meets the irrepressible Campbell whose dreams seem untouched by reality, the hyper-organised Rosalie who is fighting a one-woman war against germs, the electronic genius Fergus whose voices tell him he’s a “stupid bastard”, and the brittle and self-destructive Francine.

 

As the patients battle with perception and prejudice as much as illness, Eddie, armed only with his soul music record collection, transforms their lives as well as his own.

Featuring a fantastic soundtrack including “Soul Man”, “Rainy Night In Georgia” and “Can’t Get Next To You”.

Running time: Approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes, including 20 minute intermission.
